Welcome to 2019
You may have heard the saying that the more things change, the more they stay the same….It isn’t always true, but sometimes it is.
There really hasn’t always been the Internet but there have always been stages of life.
Stages of life is something that I have always found interesting. Like nearly everyone, I have tended to have preferences and person issues and development work commensurate with my age group. I have always made some observations of and had some interest in other age groups. It’s always different to really be each age group than it is to observe that group as older or younger than oneself.
Within the past 2 years I had a major surge of bothering to read The Bible (Protestant version) and finally made it so that 40 years after having started reading it in the 3rd grade, I have read the entire thing….aside from the 2 or 3 Catholic Bible books that aren’t in the Protestant versions of The Bible. (reasons unknown by me, but I may redo the research so I can blog about it).
Age groups in The Bible
One of the tidbits I found to be awesome was when I was reading about how God used different age groups to deal with packing up the Temple in the wilderness. I mean, WOW, maybe even WOWOWOWOWOWOOh hoo wow!
There were other events in at least 2 books of The Bible in which it became really noticeable that for some matters God said: use all the men between and 18 and 60 years old.
Other matters: Don’t let anyone under 30 years old touch that stuff!!!
In some cases: get someone who is at least 50 years old, if you want that dealt with properly.
I was honestly mildly stunned, but after a while sort of pleased. None of us is useless for our stage in life and when each of us fulfills our divine destiny, there is a schedule to what needs to happen when, some of it is very detailed in terms of time of day and other stuff is really like: wow, don’t do that yet, or please do that.
In reality, it may have taken me so long to read the entire Bible because of laziness or spiritual attacks against me, but it’s also possible that it is actually better to leave most of it until over 30 years old.
Anyway, this time that’s the spiritual tidbit.
